Hank Thompson is known for his song “The Wild Side of Life.” The song became popular in 1952 where Thompson earned his very first No. 1 song. This song sparks an answer song by Kitty Wells known as “It Wasn’t God Who Made the Honky Tonk Angels.” Thompson had 25 songs that entered the top 10 of the chart. In addition, he had scored 3 No. 1 songs which were “The Wild Side of Life,” “Rub-a-Dub-Dud,” and “Wake Up, Irene.” He recorded 47 albums all throughout his life from 1952 until 2000.
